A Card Deploys Konica Minolta Profession Digital Printing System— bizhub PRESS C8000 to Enhance Productivity and Competitiveness


"Difference in Color is often the main problem in the digital printing; however, Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 can produce stable and accurate color. In addition, its color output has met with international standards, Fogra 39 and GRACoL 2006, which is close to the precise standards of off-set printing."

Mr. Hui Kwok Keung
Director
A Card Company Ltd.

A Card

A Card Company Ltd. (A Card) is a smart card manufacturer which established in 1989. For more than 20 years, A Card is professional in printing different types of high-end business plastic card products, mainly in PVC card, contactless smart cards, RFID and security labels. Its customers are around the world. A Card has two factories in Hong Kong and Xiamen respectively. In order to be close to the market trends, it started the development of digital printing. Two years ago, A Card has installed one Konica Minolta's professional digital printing system, bizhub PRO C5501. Recently it also introduced bizhub PRESS C8000 which empowers their production to meet European and American customers’ strict requirements in quality and environmental protection.

Improve Production Efficiency and Save Labor Costs

Mr. Hui, Director of A Card, mentioned when the company was first established, it just provided customers with offset printing services. However, due to the significant increase in the number of short-run printing and rush orders in recent years, more and more customers require one thousand, or even just one hundred printouts. On the other hand, orders of thousands printouts have been decreased. While some clients require exquisite printing quality, however, recruiting experienced talents in offset printing is getting harder. Hence, A Card has determined to transit to the development of digital printing to meet market needs.

bizhub PRESS C8000 is the most productive models for short-run printing and print-on-demand in Konica Minolta’s digital printing production series. With fast and efficient color output capability, regardless of color or black and white print, it can produce output at 80 pages per minute (single-sided A4 paper) and up to 500,000 pages per month. After a great enhancement in hardware design, real-time density adjustment system can bring users up to 10,000 continuous printing with consistent image quality. Meanwhile, bizhub PRESS C8000 has built a variety of inline finishing options, including booklet making, punching and page insertion. Thus, the high-speed printing of bizhub PRESS C8000 can improve production efficiency while various finishing options can save manpower and reduce human errors which perfectly meet the needs of A Card.   Improve Production Efficiency and Save Labor Costs


Superior Functionality Coupled with Outstanding Support Services

Mr. Hui pointed out, "Difference in Color is often the main problem in the digital printing; However, Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 can produce stable and accurate color. In addition, its color output has met with international standards, Fogra 39 and GRACoL 2006, which is close to the precise standards of off-set printing."

Mr. Hui continued, “Not every digital printing system can handle with thicker materials for card printing. However, bizhub PRESS C8000's paper handling capacity is highly flexible which can print on a variety of special materials and maintain the excellent results to meet the production requirements of high-value printing. This is particularly important to business development of A Card.”

In addition to the excellent printing results, thoughtful after-sales service is also very important. Mr. Hui reviewed that most of their orders are urgent and rush. If the printing system lacks timely maintenance service, it will greatly affect the production. Konica Minolta's supporting services are quick and flexible. Even though A Card’s plant is located in the distant Fujian Province, the users can contact with Konica Minolta’s technical staff to tackle the problem with a satisfactory attitude. The reliability and integrity of Konica Minolta are credited to the reasons for continuous purchase.

Adhering to Environmental Protection Won the Attention from Customers

Mr. Hui stated that waste emitted from digital printing is less than offset printing since offset printing consumes a lot of paper and ink in trial printing; on the contrary, digital printing systems only requires toner in the production process. Digital printing also provides print-on-demand service which can reduce wastage in excessive printing and solve the inventory problem. Environmental protection has always been the premise of A Card’s development. In order to implement green production comprehensively, it starts from the procurement of materials as well as the printing equipments.

Europe and USA, where products of A Card are basically exported to , have strict environmental requirements. The persistence in environmental protection and commitment to social responsibility proved A Card has met with the needs of customers. Mr. Hui revealed that, even the global economic is still in uncertainty, the company remains growth in business.

Mr. Robert Ip, Director of Sales, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Konica Minolta Business Solutions (HK) Co. Ltd. added, "Konica Minolta's professional digital printing systems use Simitri Toner, an environmental polymerized toner developed by our R&D Department. Compared with the traditional laser toner, Simitri Toner not only can reproduce better output images and finer lines, it can also help reducing carbon dioxide emissions up to 40%. Konica Minolta is now working with A Card to reduce the impact on global warming."

Keep Abreast of the Market Development and Explore New Business Opportunities

Mr. Hui considered that the digital printing industry is now on track. In order to expand its business, the company not only steps up more promotions in different ways for increasing the customer base, but also adds the appropriate equipment to meet up the production. In addition, green printing is also the industry trend that needs the entire production process to incorporate with green elements.

Next Generation Printing Management Empowers One-stop Printing Solution Provider

Before embarking on digital printing, Art Point Production specialized in prepress services including film output, CTP plate making, digital banner production, digital color proofing and blueline paper. Then, Hugo Cheng, the company's managing director, came across the exciting new technology of digital printing. After surveying the market for options, he finally selected the Konica Minolta bizhub PRO digital printing system to complement the company's comprehensive post-press facilities. This strategic decision signified a major corporate turning point, allowing Art Point to quickly and successfully expand into new territories, while encompassing digital printing to enhance post-press service revenue streams. With the bizhub PRO system, Art Point Production is all set to meet print-on-demand requirements from customers.

"Customers today are looking for 'convenient, flexible, speedy and economical' printing solutions. Digital printing and offset printing are not mutually exclusive. They complement each other's limitations, allowing the customer and the printing company to enjoy the best of both worlds. Digital printing doesn't take away revenue opportunity from offset printing. It actually expands the printing market." said Mr Cheng.

Mr. Cheng explained that digital printing offers customers greater flexibility to print the exact quantity they need. This enables a new workflow that not only avoids wastage but also saves the expenses of additional production and storage. This helps enterprises be cost-efficient and environmental friendly.

In the example of book publishing, publishers and writers can test the market with on-demand printing, with small print runs, before committing to larger volume printing using either offset printing or digital printing. This reduces market risk and enables excellent cost control," said Mr. Cheng.

A High Performance System

Art Point Production utilizes Konica Minolta's bizhub PRO 1050 digital printing production system and bizhub C450 multi-functional color system. These solutions respectively offer a top printing speed of 6,300 pages-per-hour in black and white A4 size and 2,100 pages-per-hour in high quality color A4 size. The systems can work together in a streamlined manner to produce printed matter with black and white inner pages and color covers, saving production delays and ensuring timely delivery even with tight schedules, such as in a film production environment.

To complete his company's one-stop service to customers, Mr. Cheng augmented his Konica Minolta digital printing system with additional post-press equipment including a binding machine, finisher, laminator and paper cutter.

Great Market Potential

"Digital printing technology has reached maturity. Nowadays, digital printing's output quality is comparable to offset printing, offering customers a convenient, flexible, speedy and economical alternative," said Mr. Cheng.

Besides book publication, Mr. Cheng said customers have also recently begun to request tailor-made small production runs for personal or corporate applications. Digital printing is really the only method able to satisfy this market demand within reasonable cost and time.

Great Market Potential

In regards to personal applications, the digital option provides limitless flexibility for people to experiment with family photos of newborns, weddings and other personal subjects. Calendars, photo albums, albums of paintings, heat transfer T-shirts and other such customized items can also be produced. Aspiring writers are also able to publish their work with a lower cost to reach their initial readership.

In the corporate world, digital printing allows small production runs of commercial booklets, promotional leaflets, corporate souvenirs and other premiums and collateral based on timely needs of customers.

The opportunities afforded by digital printing are truly diverse and the technology has immense market potential.

Forecasting Digital Printing Development

Robert Ip, Director of Sales, Marketing and Public Relations for Konica Minolta Business Solutions (HK) Ltd., sees great things ahead for digital printing: "Enterprises have begun to realize the power of digital printing. Because the technology enables new options for companies, such as in sales and marketing, and other areas of operations , we are seeing corporate purchases for digital printing equipment. Examples of enterprise use include monthly statement printing in the banking sector, production of teaching materials at education centers, and even barcode printing for garment manufacturers."

Mr. Ip also pointed out Konica Minolta will continue developing software solutions, such as its new RAP job submission system, to assist enterprises in managing and monitoring digital printing, raising workflow efficiency.

"Konica Minolta will keep on developing diversified hardware and software," concluded Mr. Ip. "We will persist in integrating and optimizing Internet and information security features and continue delivering excellent customer service. By helping our customers take advantage of more business opportunities, we in turn will also be successful."

Konica Minolta Assists e‐print in Entering Digital Printing Market—A Breakthrough from the Innovative Ideas with Effective Information Technology

Background

Since the opening in October 2001, the business of e-print, a professional printing company, has recorded rapid growth. Now, the number of its employees reaches more than 210 and it owns 30+ factories which total areas are near 70,000 sq ft. The company is the pioneer of the industry which was the first to establish Color Management Department. By means of introducing the advanced Color Control System and Printing Inspection System and establishing the internal software development team, e-print devotes to the enhancement of the printing quality and determines to serve the government departments and all kinds of businesses with exquisite printings like business name cards, leaflets, books, menus and paintings.

Boundless Creativity and Taking Advantages of Advanced Technology

Boundless Creativity and Taking Advantages of Advanced Technology   e-print notices that all sizes of enterprises have to change their sales and marketing materials frequently thanks to the ever-changing market. Hence, all businesses are demanding for the prompt output in small amount, yet with high quality and in low cost. This is called as “Short-run” in printing industry. In the recent year, because of the economic downturn, the competition in the market has become fiercer. Customers even request for 50 or fewer printouts finished within 24 hours. For example, the new comic writers usually publish their works in the “Dojinshi Area” of the annual comic and animation events, The ACGHK. They just need a very small amount of their comics. The traditional off-set printing, however, cannot fulfill their needs.

In order to expand the potential market in “Very-Short-Run”, e-print has deployed 3 sets bizhub PRO C6500 in August 2008 and it swiftly started the operation for “24/7” mode.

In fact, since 2004, e-print has already installed about 30 Color Digital Multi-Functional Peripherals (MFPs) from Konica Minolta in their offices. The color accuracy, stability and compatibility of the MFPs and as well as the professional service and support have already impressed e-print.

Moreover, during the participation in the World’s largest printing equipment exhibition, DRUPA 2008, held in Germany in April 2008, the e-print group has found that the digital printing technology, especially from Konica Minolta, has become more mature and is even comparable to the off-set printing according to its production time, flexibility of print volume and cost. Hence, e-print is eager to acquire the digital printing production system.

“It has been long for us leading the ‘Short-Run’ market, but recently we found that the demands for ‘Very-Short-Run’ from customers are increasing. For example, most of the Hong Kong Tea Restaurants are in small scope and their menus are always changing. Twenty to thirty menus are already adequate to them. However, order of 400-500 sets is the minimum requirement for off-set printing. The redundancy would be disposed. This creates not only the wastage of money and resources, but also the pollution,” Mr. Ip Tsz-man, Managing Director of e-print stated, “e-print is reputed to provide fast and quality color printouts. Hence, we have to carefully select the digital printing production system which should be with strong and reliable functionalities, low total cost of ownership (TCO) and, of course, high compatibility to other printing infrastructures. Based on our familiarity with Konica Minolta and the thorough comparison with other brands, there is no alternative for us unless Konica Minolta’s color digital printing production system, bizhub PRO C6500.

The Splendid and Professional Service

During the whole installation process of bizhub PRO C6500 by Konica Minolta, the company has constantly provided professional and caring suggestions. Mr. Robert Ip, Director of Sales, Marketing and Corporate Communications of Konica Minolta remarked, “We have allocated experienced and professional consultants to e-print for a detailed evaluation of the factory’s indoor temperature, humidity, air-extracting condition, cable distribution and interior design. Then, we had provided comprehensive proposals which helped e-print to reform an ideal environment for bzihub PRO C6500 for better performances so as to operate continuously.”

The High Efficacy of Konica Minolta’s Digital Printing Production System, bizhub PRO Series

For the sake of efficiently outputting the huge amount of printouts, e-print has equipped the large paper feed cabinet to increase the capacity into 7,500 sheets. While tying in the high print speed and productivity, which produces output at 65 ppm and the first copy time is less than 7 seconds, bizhub PRO C6500 is adaptable to e-print’s professional requirement.

The Magnificent Image Quality and Accurate Position Fixing

For the distinct color management and strict color control of e-print, Konica Minolta’s Simitri HD polymerized toner can perfectly suit what e-print needs. The toner’s particles are extremely small, smooth and consistent in shape which can ensure the high quality of color photo and illustration, as well as the razor-shape characters, text and line.

The Online Printing System Enhance Job Coordination

In order to bring convenience to the customers and fasten the workflow, e-print has developed its own “Document Uploading System” which let its clients to upload different kinds of documents including text and table document, presentation and design blueprints. The uploading process just lasts for around 3 minutes and the documents of the day will be converted as PDF format by more than 100 staff at the back-up office in China. Then, the converted files will start getting printed.

Mr. Ip Tsz-man remarks, “Since bizhub PRO C6500 is compatible with wide range of document formats like PDF, JPEG and TIFF, etc, it can match up our “7/24” operation mode. The administration work of processing and finishing the pre-production takes place in China. Then, the production and delivery would be done in Hong Kong. The unconventional business operations can ensure our clients to receive the printouts in a shorter period. Because of our tight production schedule and high consistency in productivity, only Konica Minolta’s digital printing production system can have such stable performance and high printing speed that easily fulfill our requirements. The Online Printing System Enhance Job Coordination


Indeed, the “Document Uploading System” is one of the most important sections in e-print’s production printing workflow solutions, “e-print—Online Printing System”. This System was awarded as Best Business (Application-SME) Silver Award in Hong Kong ICT Awards 2008 organized by Office of the Government Chief Information Officer. This simply proves that the digital printing technology of Konica Minolta is outstanding which can fluently compact with e-print’s self-developed professional IT system.

More Business Opportunities in the Future

More Business Opportunities in the Future   To look forward, e-print is eager to exploit a new business, “Personality”. It is planning to invest more in upgrading or installing the printing system. It will also develop its own business application to let customers to design their own personalized products, such as wedding invitation cards, albums for travel and celebration and graduation commemorative albums. In addition, e-print’s another self-developed VDP production workflow solutions can optimize the printing system and increase the productivity. The determination to seek for betterment can definitely satisfy customers’ needs and grasp the business opportunity.


Mr. Ip Tsz-man concludes, “The digital printing business of e-print is still at the beginning. However, we can see its huge potential in the market and even the new partnership with clients. Do not look down to small-amount orders like few sets of minutes, text book samples or menus. Since these new customers who have tried the efficient digital printing system, normally, they will come back with large-amount orders. Konica Minolta’s digital printing technology and supporting services are in the lead of the industry which becomes the back-up to e-print. While tying in our prompt, convenient and low-cost services to customers, e-print can flexibly deal with the market needs which vary from minutes to minutes.”

Output Express Ltd.
Konica Minolta Professional Digital Printing System Helps Output Express to Explore Digital Printing Market


Development of Digital Printing to Match Up with the Market

Output Express Limited (Output Express) has been established for more than 20 years which is a combination of pre-press and digital printing production company to provide customers with professional services. In the early stage, it mainly engaged in the business of color separation, film output, traditional proofing and offset printing. With the rapid advances in technology, coupled with customer requirements in efficient service, Output Express determined to carry out the business of digital printing a decade ago. At the very beginning, the offset printing systems accounted for 90% of the business, however, after years of exploration and development, now 80% of the business is generated from digital printing.

Digital printing most likely is short-run printing which print volume is small but price is affordable. Therefore, its customer base is very wide, including various scales of enterprises and schools, for printing diversified products from pamphlets, menus, hotel publicity materials to report, annual report, sample book, textbook with CD and posters, etc,. Meanwhile, Output Express introduces variable data printing for their digital printing systems, in response to customer needs of individualized digital printouts, to help its customers to create unique promotional products.

Introduction of Advanced Equipment Improves Efficiency and Reliability

Introduction of Advanced Equipment Improves Efficiency and Reliability  

Mr. Eric Chau, Director of Output Express mentioned the company had initially used smaller digital presses. Later on, with the product improvement and the ever-changing market demand, he acquired the idea of installing new machine. By chance, he was contacted with Konica Minolta. After the mutual communication, Konica Minolta further understood the real needs of Output Express. And hence, it introduced the first professional mono digital printing system, bizhub PRO 950.

bizhub PRO 950 can print 5,700 sheets per hour which can greatly shorten the time for waiting the file output. Meanwhile, bizhub PRO 950 can support a wide range of paper and is compatible with Konica Minolta's proprietary Simitri polymerized toner to output accurate printouts.

Since bizhub PRO 950 is with good performance and stability, coupled with the company's business growth, Mr. Chau has decided to purchase another professional mono digital printing system, bizhub PRO 1050e. This model can also bring out excellent output effect which paper tray can load a total of 9,000 sheets of A3 or A4 paper and print up to 6,300 A4 sheets or 3,600 A3 sheets per hour. bizhub PRO 1050e helps completing the job in the shortest time that improves Output Express’s productivity and reliability.

Mr. Chau initially did not intend to replace the digital color printing system. However, taking into account to the effect of mixed different brands of equipment will make the product cannot meet customer needs; many problems but then the old equipment, so decided to switch, and for the past the disadvantages of the old machine, with Konica Minolta's colleagues in-depth discussion and research, and finally the introduction of the Konica Minolta bizhub PRO C6501.

Mr. Chau further explained, “In addition to product performance, attentive after-sales service is also very important. Even claiming as the best printing system, it also inevitably encounters problems. However, when we needed maintenance from the providers but they cannot make it on time, it will definitely lead the production to a standstill and incur losses. On the order hand, if the after-sales service is excellent but the system is often out of order, the repair made every day will greatly affect the efficiency.” Konica Minolta can provide both products and services with satisfactory quality—the excellent stability of printing system performance, timely and flexible services and even encountering the technical or software problems, it is convenient to find their technical staff with reliable service. All of these make the reasons for Output Express to purchase from Konica Minolta.

Konica Minolta Digital Printing Production System Reinforces SNP Leefung (Dongguan) Optimization in Pre‐press Workflow and Great Reduction in Human Resources

SNP Leefung Holdings Limited is a multinational printing and packaging enterprise and one of its division, SNP Leefung Packaging & Printing (Dongguan) Co., Ltd (hereafter called as “SNP Leefung (Dongguan)”)is mainly responsible for the design, printing and binding of hardcover books, child and juvenile books and luxury magazines. Clients of SNP Leefung (Dongguan) are covered more than 30 countries and regions. Its advanced printing hardware incorporated with the high-standard of personalized services do provide the customers with top product quality.

In the recent years, the digital printing technology has become more mature. This can be reflected by the outstanding print-on-demand, short-run printing and variable data printing and all these services are greatly demanded by the users. Besides, digital production printing can enhance the efficiency in the field of pre-printing indeed. SNP Leefung (Dongguan) has been selecting Konica Minolta in assisting its field of pre-printing for two and a half years. The digital printing production system of Konica Minolta effectively streamlines the draft-printing workflow and greatly reduces the time and cost. In addition, according to the market’s demand, SNP Leefung (Dongguan) always explores add-valued services to increase its competitiveness.

Draft-printing by Professional Digital Printing Production System Brings Cost Reduction

Two and a half years ago, SNP Leefung (Dongguan) likes many other printing companies that used the traditional pre-printing workflow, i.e. using the Ink-jet Porter for digital draft-printing for managing the color-control and Blue-paper Printer for blue-paper-printing so as to coordinate with the whole printing process.

Mr. Benson Seah, Senior Manager of Pre-press Department in SNP Leefung (Dongguan) said that both of these traditional draft-printing methods had their shortcomings. Digital draft-printing required to work with the specialized paper and ink. Moreover, its speed is rather slow for production. For blue-paper-printing, the printing quality is relatively low and it is hard to make duplex copy. Therefore, SNP Leefung (Dongguan) had to employ more staff to fold and bind the draft. Obviously, this method creates huge wastage in human resources.

In 2007, Mr. Seah finally found an effective way which can easily control the cost and enhance both efficiency and quality at a time. With the serious consideration and strict selection, SNP Leefung (Dongguan) had deployed Konica Minolta’s bizhub PRO C6500. This color digital printing production system can swiftly produce output at 65cpm with high printing resolution. The additional finishing options can produce high-quality deliverables as well. In addition with the image controller, Creo IC304 plus, bizhub C6500 can successfully communicate with the Kodak Printergy CTP by “Digital Blue Line”. Also, with the assistance of Konica Minolta’s technicians, bizhub PRO C6500 has swimmingly penetrated into the CTP workflow of SNP Leefung (Dongguan).

After the operations of bizhub PRO C6500, the pre-press workflow of SNP Leefung (Dongguan) has had a significant hardware setting change. Mr. Seah has compiled the statistics as follows:
The number of digital draft-printing infrastructures was reduced from 4 to 2 and the Blue-paper Printers were reduced from 8 sets to 3 sets. With the deduction of the traditional digital draft-printing machines and the complement of bizhub PRO C6500, which can easily produce printout on papers with different sizes and textures, the cost for specialized paper and ink has successfully saved 60% and 70% respectively. Moreover, the working procedure of the original blue-paper draft-printing included paper cutting, folding and binding, etc. The complicated process not only creates possibility for errors, but also heavily consumes manpower. While using the duplex functions and finishing options of bizhub PRO C6500, the number of operators has declined to 10 from 19. Mr. Seah commented that the deployment of Konica Minolta’s color digital production printing system can definitely help in cost-control and efficiency enhancement.

Nowadays, the request for the delivery time from the publishers is getting shorter and shorter. In the past, for printing one 192-page full color magazine, it took 10 hours for the draft-printing by the traditional digital draft-printing machine and 72 minutes by the blue-paper printer. However, when using bizhub PRO C6500, it only takes 20 minutes! The usage of digital printing production system for draft-printing can fulfill the needs of color management and product control. In addition, its fast print speed can help delivering the book samples to clients easily. Draft-printing by Professional Digital Printing Production System Brings Cost Reduction

Producing Meticulous Images in High Speed which Helps Clients to Seize Every Minute & Second

In order to stand out in the heat competition, printing industry not only needs to produce fast and high quality print-outs, but also being nimble in various situations. For example, when some clients require amending their advertisements on magazines, it can barely be satisfied by the traditional printing machines. However, these tough requirements can easily be achieved by digital printing production system. Konica Minolta self-developed-and-produced toner named Simitri HD Polymerised Toner is with extremely small and smooth particles and they are consistent in shape. All these features ensure the high quality of color photo and illustration, as well as the razor-shape characters, text and line which can compete with the Off-set printing and fulfill the requests from the clients of SNP Leefung (Dongguan).

Exploring the Value-added Businesses and Being the Trend-Setter

These days, the demand for personalized products is getting higher and higher. A number of enterprises would like to emphasize the respect to their VIP. Hence, they would like to print the VIP names on their publications. After the mass production of the inner pages of the publications by off-set printers, the personalized covers can be printed by bizhub PRO C6500 and the SPECIAL editions are done! The quality of digital production printing is widely accepted by the clients and also brings surprises to their customers as well.

In addition, Mr. Seah has further explored the potential of bizhub Pro C6500 to investigate more add-valued businesses such as the mini hardcover books which are fastidious about the paper-cutting, the pop-up books with ingenious designs, 3D books and publications printed on different textures of paper and cloth. All of these are being tested by SNP Leefung (Dongguan) and seeking for better improvement in order to gaining more profits in the future.

Comprehensive After-sale Service which Caters for Customers’ Needs

Furthermore, the professional services in pre-sale, installation and after-sale can assist us in running the entire printing process, from pre-print to binding, fast and smoothly.”

Universe Printing Company
 

Universe Printing Company Expands its Business while Optimizing the Internal Operation by Konica Minolta Digital Printing Production System

The one-stop printing company, Universe Printing Company, was established in 1999 while it only concentrated on the professional pre-print service. In 2004, Universe Printing re-structured its business nature as off-set printing company. As at Year 2007, its investment in Hong Kong and Shenzhen is over 30 million dollars for the establishment of factory buildings and hi-tech printing infrastructures. The current number of employee is 500 which 100 of them are working in Hong Kong. The working area for its 20+ retail stores in Hong Kong and factory in Mainland is over 30,000 feet in total. The business of Universe Printing grows very quickly.

The high conscientiousness of color management of Universe Printing is best-known in its industry. Its company’s philosophy is “Printing is our Profession”. While it is working hard for simplifying the production workflow, Universe Printing keeps enhancing the printing quality to ensure all products are in good quality and with low cost. Moreover, it constantly promotes various innovative products to the market which can bring convenience to its clients. All these factors definitely help Universe Printing to have the most branches in Hong Kong among the industry within these 3 years.

In the recent years, the spread of information technology has become faster and faster. In order to canvassing for more clients in the market, many businesses have to prepare its printed promotional products in a very short time. In the past, the traditional off-set printing could only accept the order of 1000 copies or above which flexibility was low. However, as these printing companies have to satisfy with their customers’ needs and to survive in the heat competition among the industry, orders of 500 copies or less have been unceasingly increased. What is more, some clients request their products should be finished as soon as possible. At the same time, Universe Printing perceived that more and more corporates and even schools are demanding for small amounts of the printed products with high quality and low cost, e.g., a hundred of leaflet, fifty classroom handouts, several posters and also the gift vouchers and lucky draw tickets which are in consecutive numbers.

Supporting the Draft-printing which Helps the Daily Operation

Universe Printing aims to adopt the latest printing technology, hence, its management always keeps a close contact among the industry and with its clients and printing equipment providers. Lately, Mr. Ricky Chau, Managing Director of Universe Printing, has realized the superb functions and stable performance of professional digital printing system. In addition, the output quality of the digital printing can also be comparable to the off-set printing’s. All of these can prove that digital printing is very suitable for draft-printing, which is needed to be approved by customers and then be passed for production by off-set printing. The technology of digital printing is getting more mature and the cost of the equipment is more acceptable to the printing companies. Besides, it can speedily support the “Variable Data Printing (VDP)”. Universe Printing, therefore, is very enthusiastic about the deployment of professional digital printing system which totally fulfills the needs in the market.

“For the sake of the extremely small amount of print volume from our clients and matching up our existing off-set printing business, it is undoubtedly for us to assume a total solution of digital printing system which can be compatible with our off-set printing system and generate the most benefits,” Mr. Chau claimed. “Konica Minolta has helped us to tailor-made the Digital Printing Production System, bizhub PRO C6500 and it is tying with the complete hardware and software. Furthermore, the professional services in pre-sale, installation and after-sale can assist us in running the entire printing process, from pre-print to binding, fast and smoothly.”

Supporting the Draft-printing which Helps the Daily Operation

The Effective Konica Minolta Digital Printing Production System, bizhub PRO C6500

Universe Printing installed the first set of bizhub PRO C6500, a wide range of in-line finishing devices (e.g., Staple Finisher, Saddle Stitcher and Multi-folding Unit, etc) and the compatible printing solution, Creo IC-304 Color Controller in December 2008. The whole system is for the digital printing service to its clients. On the other hand, the second set of bizhub PRO C6500 started its operation in Feb 2009. It is used for draft-printing to reduce cost and keep the production process fluently. For instance, the cost of traditional ink draft-printing on an A4 paper is around $10. However, the cost of draft-printing printed by bizhub PRO C6500 is only 1/5 of the previous one. Hence, the practice now using is very suitable for Universe Printing to have 2 draft-printings at a time which one is for the clients and one is for the production department. Unlike the previous practice which the production department had to wait for the delivery of the approved draft from the retailed store, now, the printed product can efficiently be produced without any wastage of time. Throughout the process of deploying 2 sets of bizhub PRO C6500, Konica Minolta has generously provided its professional advice and support. According to Mr. Chau’s careful observation, the similarity of the draft-printing by bizhub PRO C6500 and the final product by off-set printing is around 85% to 95%. This splendid result certainly fastens the confirmation of order from the clients.

The 2 bizhub PRO C6500 have totally outputted 40,000 color digital printing products in a day. While the new business trial period is less than a month, the sales turnover has already recorded as tens of thousands. The confidence in getting into the digital printing industry has been strengthened. Consequently, Universe Printing officially lanuched the digital printing service in mid-April 2009. The service pinpoints those customers who are looking for cheap yet fast and quality printing products in less than 50 sets. It is hoped that the new business can complement the current off-set printing service.

Universe Printing has also acquired the paper feed cabinet to increase the paper capacity into 7,500 sheets. Various in-line finishing devices have been used for the automatic folding, saddle stitching and stapling. All these accessories greatly help in processing a huge amount of production with different finishing options. Besides, they can support a wide range of paper size and ensure the accuracy of color management and two-sided printing spontaneously.

The Outstanding Functionalities Create Perfection

Increasing Cash Flow by Exploring the New Market

At this moment, about 90% of Universe Printing’s sales turnover comes from their commercial clients and usually, 2 to 3 months after the main festivals in Hong Kong, the turnover will lessen. Mr. Chau asserted, “After the deployment of KM Digital Printing Production System, we can explore a bigger market share by taking the small-amount orders like posters, classroom handouts, gift coupons and even the individualized printing products. This can not only create more revenue which stabilize our profit, but also fully utilize our huge branch network in order to enhance the company’s fame. This is a very important step in Universe Printing’s development indeed.”

Individuality Innovates New Business Opportunity

To look forward, Universe Printing is now positively developing its new business by promoting the valuable personalized products such as the photo albums for wedding ceremony, birthday dinner or party for new-born baby. With an increase in its business of digital printing, Universe Printing considers expanding its investment in installing extra hardware and upgrading the existing software so as to optimize the workflow of VDP and grasp the new business opportunities.

Mr. Chau concluded, “Universe Printing is optimistic towards our development in digital printing. This can provide us not only a chance to work with our new commercial clients, but also attract more individual consumers. By means of our huge branch network and the distinguished printing technology of Konica Minolta, we can guarantee to provide more superior, diverse and faster personalized printing services. The retail price of these services will be 50% less than the photo print shops’. Universe Printing must be the pioneer of the industry.”
